Strong, End-Use Parts. State-of-the-art technology prints durable metal parts.
Metal Repair. Directed Energy Deposition printers can print metal onto existing parts in need of repair.
Build Volume. Some DED printers can build parts several feet in each direction.
Intricate Geometry. 5-axis DED models can produce complicated geometries without support.
Surface Finish. Surface finish exceeding 1000 µin Ra requires post-processing to achieve the required smoothness for many applications.
Relaxed Tolerance. Directed Energy Deposition machines can typically achieve a finest tolerance of 0.01” (0.25 mm), making small features difficult.
